Hello friends, thank you very much for checking out our Duchess review!
The General Idea
Plot Synopsis From IMDB: A chronicle of the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who reviled for her extravagant political and personal lives. She is a vibrant beauty and celebrity of her time. But she is trapped in an unhappy triangle with her husband and his live-in mistress. She falls passionately in love with an ambitious young politician, and the affair causes a bitter conflict with her husband and threatens to erupt into a scandal.
Once again, period pieces are not my forte’ so take my review with a grain of salt. Everything I expect from a film like this was there, the characters were great, the story was scandalous, I became emotionally attached to the main character and the art direction was magnificent. I consider this film to be an excellent representation of it style and give it an 8/10.
Film review from someone else:
Seeing that the film is full of scandalous happenings, I wish that they would have given it a sort of “Marie Antoinette” take on the character, in that it may have been a little faster paced, like that great film from Sofia Coppola. I love period pieces and the two leads are really intriguing. I’ve always sort of like Knightley, and Fiennes is one of the best actors we’ve got today, especially coming off In Bruges. I’ll definitley be giving this one a shot when it comes to Michigan.
Hope all these can help you!:)
